Always been soda or Carbonate on my end, but down in the south everything is a coke, "You want a coke with that?" I will always remember my dad when we first moved down here and that question was asked he said, "Can I get a Dr. Pepper instead?" Hilarious.

We just called everything a coke....Dr. Pepper, Sprite, 7up, was all "Let's go get a coke". Northwest Texas.

I used to love to make fun of my cousins for saying "pop"

Now, after being in New England for almost 20 years, I just say "Soda"

Fun Post.

I grew up calling all soda "coke", til i realized it wasn't. Now I call it soda, but mostly I just say the brand of the soda. When I was a bartender, one older gentleman called soda- "sodee water" every time he ordered which always made me smile. That's the south for ya

In the UK we don't tend to call them Pop or Soda, we call it juice or Fizzy drink.

You got a soda at the drugstore fountain

You got a Glass A&W Gallon Root Beer Jug and brought it back for cheap refills

This was fizzie drink

In Canada, as a child, we called it pop. Now, as adults, we call it "mix"

The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy

It has always been just "pop" with my family...

I've heard them all though, and it's a good question. Is this for general knowledge?

Funny I was going to make a thread similar to this yesterday(?) for the same reason; "gas vs petrol" thread.

Soda for me, as I grew up in the deep south. While I don't live there now, I am still used to saying soda in the north. I also, say coke(ie, also used in the South...Coca Cola), which often gets people looking at me funny as if I'm talking of something other than a soft drink.

When I lived in Ohio it was referred to as pop, now that I'm love in the South West I use the term soda. However, I remember a few of my older relatives refer to it as soda water.

Pop is what most people I've ever met in my area call it, my area being Oregon.

Some people really call it fizzy drink or sodee pop? I think I would LOL if someone said that. No offense intended, it just sounds funny to me

I have not ever heard or someone calling it "carbonate" but I REALLY like that! I think I'm going to start calling pop "carbonate" "Hey can I get a carbonate?" "WHAT?" LOL Just watch, it will be big here in the PNW within a few years. I urge my fellow PNWers to start this as well.

Carbonate for the future.

I grew up in Appalachia myself, and it is called "soda." I never heard it called "pop" until I moved to Indiana, Yankee country. Thankfully, I am not in the South again, above the big river, but south, nonetheless. I still call it soda.

I generally flit between (depending on who I am asking) cold drink.. soft drink.. or fizzy drink..
the only time I use the word soda is Soda Water or Creme Soda..

Hey there!...I grew up in the Pacific Northwest too....when I was growing up we called it in my neighborhood we used both terms. I absolutely loved root beer floats...with Dad's root beer and a scoop of vanilla ice cream...what a treat!
